the greek government office even then does a stake in a whole range of national companies to get the country back on track but many say it's the people who are being put up for sale. the security council resolution against libya because all the fake media reports one day everybody in the world is seeing the libyan libyan navy is bombing the heart of what often is the. maze that is in the middle of there's that insight into nato bombing of libya with colonel gadhafi son an exclusive interview with r.t. also. who was the government accountable on your own american citizens people was born right here on american soil you this is a shame as three men each get twenty five years in jail off an f.b.i. sting operation questions are being raised about u.s. tactics in fighting homegrown terror.
you're watching r.t. welcome to the program our top story now greece is now set for a lifeline from the e.u. the parliament passed a vote on how to implement tough new austerity measures the cuts tax hikes were a condition for twelve billion euro distant rescue cash however the move sent thousands of angry protesters onto the streets of athens and this center first reports plans to sell off the greek assets to the highest bidder also fanning the flames. greece is not for sale the message from a furious public has plans to sell off many greek assets pushes ahead quick so incredibly proud of their heritage many people feel that the privatization proposals is simply stripping grace of public assets potentially up for grabs for
the lenders banks water companies and train operators among many more at stake in the large telecommunications company aig he is also the sale with the. o.t. there's been a continuous crime for the past twenty years they've sold off our company piece by piece and now we only own a small percentage but that small stake is extremely important to the greek people but they want to sell even that. is a huge turn for the present government who were heavily opposed to the sale of eighty shares when they were acting as opposition. they called it a national crime when the previous government sold shares now they want to do the same and sell the shares now at a low price we don't think we'll see investment or any development of it to you we think the only thing others will care about is profit profit profit. big continuous calls from the public to refuse the aggressive privatization proposals set forth by
the troika has seemingly gone unheard of their breasts are from the european union is there a mendel's we would talk about blackmail i guess the greek government critics have argued that they backing a bailout acting out of self-interest keeping profits private lets their losses say she lies nothing you hear is not like greeks have to stretch back into deep history to figure this out we can look at latin american we can look at countries all over the world where the i.m.f. has come in and sacrificed and plundered the nation for corporate consolidation and the prime minister happened during a stake of avoiding the countries can upset all cost that many in our. asking just how high a price he's willing to pay someone dies there's something very tragic occurs that's going to be a catalyst for i think of all this government the e.u. has stated fairly there's no plan b. to the a stereo he measured as being enacted buses theory bills on the streets might be
time they thought of one. sarafan r.t. athens. where eurozone finance ministers will now start working out the final details of the athens rescue package which is likely to be ready shortly. or professor cost us from the university of london says the bailouts with effectively hundreds of greek sovereignty to you international monetary fund. this measures mean that the salaries and pensions of people in the public sector have been cut to up to forty percent they mean that unemployment is going up to about sixteen percent with forty five percent of huge unemployment in it which means that the whole generation of young vic people is being destroyed they mean one hundred fifty thousand jobs lost in the public sector and they mean that some of the most important utilities like power like electricity power what is being sold off of this is absolutely unprecedented in any western european countries for the last
one hundred years so that is the economic part of it this is an i.m.f. imposed totally neocolonial set of measures and politically again these neocolonial because it is not just the government that has been asked to accept these measures they were insistent demand that the opposition all opposition parties should accept it so we have a situation in which the main structure of greece has now moved from athens into brussels and the other european centers and the greek politicians and the greek public has been asked really to implement whatever they've been decided that. that was no professor costas to. london and speaking on how the terms of the pain that are going to affect the greek people. moscow has raised concern over france's admission that its military supplied the weapons to rebels in libya russia's foreign minister said the move could be seen as
a serious violation of the u.n. arms embargo it was the first holiday to them has owned up to supplying weapons to libya since the beginning of a campaign the u.n. mandate on libya falls short of authorizing a ground invasion owning sides of our military action to protect civilians but hasn't gone completely to plan the alliance already confirming multiple civilian casualties caused by astroids party talked exclusively with his son who says their terms in the way of targeting. they hit a house of a friend of my father in the whole family. the wife pregnant died two young girls of the day and again we are hitting a military site. a plane a president why. with. the control and commanding libyan
troops. come out. it's pretty silly and there are some people saying that if gadhafi is the fighting will stop store. course not because if your goal is the goal is to control libya. is going to leave you this is the target. and the libyans will not allow them to do that. so the fight will continue what do you think about media war who is winning in this war at the beginning the one. where they want. the one because it was planned from beginning to get out. collapsed that i was really and that if you got. into it because the whole country. still now suffering from that case but now the libyans. are we are one day everybody and they were saying the libyan libyan navy is bombing the harbor off mr. maes that is in the middle of the desert it's one
thousand kilometers on near the libyan ships there are bombing the harbor of mr excuse me assess the security council issued their resolution against libya because of a fake media report seeing that the libyan air force is bombing. a military civilian districts in tripoli and killing seven thousand people due to the problems both and harry they want to push the soonest possible because the are hungry. tired they want to share the cake. the slake for them libya is like fast food like mcdonald's fast because every should be fast fast fast airplanes fast bullets fast victory. but we are very patient because we are in our country so

officials have decided to double down recently announcing counterterrorism plans that refocus resources on combat in homegrown plots this is the first kind of turns a strategy that focuses on the ability of al qaeda and its that work to inspire people in the united states to attack us from within yet in countless so-called f.b.i. sting operations f.b.i. operatives provided the fake c four and actually showed them a fake stinger missile the inspiration to attack america has come from a government paid informant working to orchestrate the plan a tactic critics say exercised in a new york case dubbed newberg for. the suspects poor illiterate african-american muslims were presented as the faces of homegrown terrorism and subsequently found guilty of conspiring and attempting terrorist attacks against the u.s. no direction by a foreign entity or real terrorist group instead direction came from shahid hussain

there that they are using the u.s. federal judge said outrageous government behavioral was after size in the case of the new york for expressing doubt that convicts would of or would a planned attack without the f.b.i. informant however the specific charges against the men require a mandatory minimum sentence of twenty five years in prison prosecutors say they manufactured what would have been up home lost so much that if carried out and quote the fact that it was fake doesn't matter or enough or not artsy new york. normal service resumes in the u.k. today nationwide strike against pension cuts for hundreds of thousands of public sector workers. disruption to large parts of the country schools airports courthouses and employment centers were affected by the display of the calls by the coalition governments austerity plans activist daniel garvin says the tough spending cuts penalizing the wrong people the government's line is that any any
